“First-rate First Nations exhibits”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

More than you can ever imaginable have to time to see all of it. Drawers of history are set up under various displays. Displays come to life by having living stories given by relatives or natives-not just another plaque on the wall. Totems and history are phenomenal. Wish there were more selections and prints available in the gift shop.

“Too much to see”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

You could spend a long time here if you wanted to see everything. Well set out, very interesting exhibits, only fault, if you could call it that, it's a long way out of Vancouver, but well worth the visit.

“Learning more of our aboriginal friends”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

I wished I had more time when I went there. There is so much to learn. Very interesting. I learned a lot about customs and symbols of first nations living in that western part of Canada.
